Spring is officially in full swing and summer is just right around the corner. It’s the perfect time of the year to get outside and do some exploring. Three things that go well together this time of the year are the great outdoors, hiking and (of course) beer. After reading this, grab some of your favorite beers, find some trails and get up into the mountains.
There are a lot of amazing IPAs out there these days, but something you don’t hear about as often is an amazing triple IPA. Triple IPA is not an official style recognized by the Brewer’s Association, but generally speaking, it is a high ABV IPA (typically double digits). Some IPAs that are 10% ABV or higher can be very boozy and wouldn’t be something you’d consider “easy drinking.” However, Wren House Brewing Company in Phoenix has cracked the code.
These guys have brewed a hazy triple IPA that is very easy drinking (almost too easy) not just once — but four times. Those four tantalizing IPAs are what you’ll find in their Wally’s World IPA series: Good Boy Wally, Bad Boy Wally, Sad Boy Wally and Where’s Wally. The beers were named after one of the founder’s dogs, Wally. Each brew ranges from 10%-11.2% ABV and drinks like the ABV is half that amount. Grab a mixed four pack, sit back and enjoy the series — just maybe not all in one sitting.
The blokes at River North Brewery (Denver, CO) have added two new beers to its can lineup, Colorado IPA and Pils. Joining perennial favorites River North White and FarmHouse, these new additions are the perfect complement to the brewery’s lineup of #AdventureFuel canned exclusively for Colorado beer lovers. This is big news for a brewery that has recently moved to a new location that allows them to brew beers they have wanted to for a while. Although this is a branching out from their Belgian influences, they are quick to note that they are not retiring any of their longstanding beers.
